METABOLIC MINERAL SERIES –IODINE

Iodine is a mineral which the body cannot produce and needs from outside. Hence we depend on food and absorption of iodine as the mineral is essential for normal functioning of the thyroid gland.  Iodine is an essential component of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Thyroid hormones regulate many important biochemical reactions, including protein synthesis and enzymatic activity, and are critical determinants of metabolic activity. They are also required for proper skeletal and central nervous system development in foetuses and infants
